Reports are varied and somewhat limited at this time, but it appears there has been yet another “school shooting” this time at Lone Star College in North Harris County, Texas. We’ll have more as details emerge.
So, recapping what we’ve been told:
– Three people, including a gunman, were wounded in a shooting between two people on the North Harris campus of Lone Star College in Houston, school spokesman Jed Young said.
– The second gunman is on the loose but not believed to be on campus, Young said.
– A fourth person suffered a heart attack, according to the federal law enforcement source.
– The shooting happened at a campus library, the law enforcement source says.
– No deaths have been reported.
Dozens of law enforcement officers are searching for a second suspect on the loose.
Lloyd Overcash, a stringer with our news partner KHOU 11 News, saw one male being brought out of the library on a stretcher.
At least one other person was being treated by EMS crews outside the library when KHOU’s helicopter flew over.
The only thing campus officials could confirm is that the school is on lockdown.
Early reports indicated that there were two gunmen. One gunman is believed to be in police custody and the other is on the run.
Paramedics are on the scene and are treating several victims. Students could be seen being led out of the sprawling campus with their hands on their heads. Police SWAT teams were searching the campus.
An emergency alert was sent to students advising them and faculty to take immediate shelter and not to enter the campus until notified further. Other local school were also placed on lock down.
